Network Audio Recording Environment
Musicians in a recording session are used to collaborating in real-time. Distance makes this difficult, and current technologies that allow distance collaboration are either prohibitively expensive or rely on non real-time, store-and-forward strategies. The Network Audio Recording Environment is an object-oriented, client-server environment that enables real-time, collaborative audio production. The system provides full-duplex streaming of data over TCP/IP networks and establishes a custom messaging protocol to handle the communication of audio and control information between the client and server. The success of this project demonstrates that real-time, collaborative audio on the Internet is within reach. NARE provides a prototype of an inexpensive solution without the need for proprietary hardware or accounts on centralized servers.
